„On 13 July 2012 in Rome, 10 strugglers are being tried for participation in the clashes which took place in July 2001 in Genova against the G8 summit, while they are already facing serious sentences of 10 to 15 years of imprisonment according to a verdict from a previous trial in Genova.
Today, the case of these strugglers is an attempt to strike the revolting rage against the global dictatorship of the political and financial bosses who are setting about the looting and destruction of societies and nature in every corner of the globe. Like it was struck through the murder by the Italian police of Carlos Juliani, the severe buttery of many demonstrators by the guards of the global domination in the streets of Genova and during the bloody invasion in the Diaz school used as lodging and the abuse and torturing of hundreds of arrestees in the detention centre of Bolgianetto.
Eleven years after the uprising of Genova, the institutional violence of the courts of civil democracy, through the attempt to criminalize those who fight and the threat of many years of imprisonment, is part of the answer which those ‘from above’ have against the revolters’ denial to be trapped within the boundaries of granted protest. It is the keeping-up of the work of the severe suppression and the anti-insurrectional propaganda against the tens of thousands of revolting demonstrators who opposed the power of international gathering, self-organization, solidarity and social-class counter-attack against the superior firepower of the Regime and its supranational formations. And finally it is one more terrorizing message to the raging social resistances.
It is worth mentioning that at the same time Carlo Juliani’s murderer, Mario Placanica, has been free of any charge. Also, 25 police officers and leaders of Security Forces, responsible for the Diaz massacre and recently unappealably sentenced only to support the unstable mask of democracy of the Italian authorities, were cleared of the charge of severe bodily harm because of prescription. While all these years several officers involved in the murderous police operations of Genova have been rewarded with promotions for their ‘services’.
Each and every one who was in the streets of the clash held by the forces of revolt against the Regime in Genova in 2001 could be in the position of the ones prosecuted and tried on 13 July. It was clash which was a peak moment of the struggle of the movements against global domination, of the constant and worldwide confrontations of those ‘from below’ who defend life and dignity against death promised by the bosses. The prosecuted fighters of Genova are not alone!
From a corner of the globe, Greece, where the supranational mechanisms of domination of E.U., I.M.F., and E.C.B. in cooperation with the local financial and political bosses aggravate the conditions of exploitation and oppression of those ‘from below’ aiming the total transformation of society in favour of the international and local elite, we stand by the side of the prosecuted demonstrators of Genova through our participation in the social and class struggles which fight the totalitarianism of authority and through the claim of international solidarity and globalization of resistance. Solidarity is our weapon!
RESISTANCE – SELF-ORGANIZATION – SOLIDARITY AGAINST GLOBAL DOMINATION OF STATE AND CAPITAL
CARLO VIVE! WE DON’T FORGET – WE DON’T FORGIVE.
NO PROSECUTION TO THE DEMONSTRATORS OF GENOVA!
